  • Mystery Knit Poncho

    This fun, interesting, and flattering poncho was my first “mystery knit” on Ravelry.  It was so gratifying to see so many people willing to take a chance with me knowing only the needles, amount of yarn, and that this was a lady’s accessory piece. Uses needle sizes 6, 7, and 8, and worsted weight yarn to make your desired size.
